Re: [Xen-users] debian Lenny -> Squeeze domU mdX software raid migration - failed to assemble arrays

Hi Cameron

Can you please post your domU xen configuration file, also at the initramfs prompt can you type and post output of:
cat /proc/cmdline

I think you have incorrectly configured the target of the root disk.

Kind regards.

I got the previous migration with standard /dev/sdX Dom0 to work by

but now I'm migrating Lenny DomU VM to a Squeeze Dom0 which uses
software raid filesystem like:


but DomU uses /dev/sda2 /home/xen/domains/whatever.domain.com/disk.img
still, and won't see the proper hdd, I get:

Gave up waiting for root device.  Common problems:

  - Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?)
 - Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)
ALERT!  /dev/xvda2 does not exist.  Dropping to a shell!

it seems like I somehow don't have the right "driver" loading in DomU to
see Dom0 md2 filesystem, but couldn't find anything in /boot/whatever
(or even /boot) in DomU where I could pass an argument to load whatever,
is there something in the whatever.domain.com.cfg I can set to specify
md2 on Dom0 filesystem to be recognized by DomU?
